Dean Ott and Debbie Boult Technical Theatre Award

The Dean Ott and Debbie Boult Technical Theatre Award was awarded to an individual with a serious interest in becoming a Technical Director in a professional theatre. The candidate had professional theatre experience or extensive experience in community or educational theatres.

To honour the late Toronto theatre professionals Dean Ott and Debbie Boult, a special trust fund was created. Annual contributions from the trust fund and other donations paid the wages for the candidate to work on a project as Assistant Technical Director at a not-for-profit theatre in Ontario.

The recipient of the Dean Ott and Debbie Boult Technical Theatre Award worked for a minimum of six weeks on this specially created apprenticeship position, with mentoring by the theatre company's production manager and/or technical director. Each year a different mentor and theatre in Ontario was selected to host the winner of the Dean Ott and Debbie Boult Technical Theatre Award.  Applicants must be residents of Ontario.

Past recipients of the award were Ben Chaisson, Jason Hand, Alex Harmer, Craig Putt, Patrick Wood, and Ashlee Cowan.
